St. Louis Duo Bruiser Queen Confirms Brash New 7” Single, “Sugar High,”

Breakout St. Louis garage-pop duo Bruiser Queen will release "Sugar High," their debut 7" single for Velvet Elk Records, on November 16. Fueled by guitarist/singer Morgan Nusbaum's raucous Riot Grrrl vocals and Jason Potter's explosive drumming, the track showcases the band's signature fusion of snarling punk energy and infectious pop sensibilities and previews a deluxe reissue of their acclaimed 2017 album 'Heavy High,' which features five previously unreleased bonus tracks and b-sides. Bruiser Queen will mark the release with their first headline tour through the Midwest and West Coast this fall.

Formed in 2010, Bruiser Queen has earned a slew of accolades and awards in the Midwest and beyond for their mix of 21st Century punk stomp and 60's girl group shimmy. St. Louis NPR station KDHX raved that the band delivers "the kind of concentrated, uncut rock 'n' roll that is perennial in its appeal and absolutely powerful in its immediacy," while St. Louis Magazine hailed their "primal, garage punk," and Consequence of Sound praised them as "Karen O-meets-the-Pixies." Since the release of their potent 2012 debut album, 'Swears,' the duo has taken home both Best Rock Band and Best Garage Band honors in the Riverfront Times' annual Readers' Poll, landed festival slots from Savannah Stopover to Loufest, and shared bills with Wanda Jackson, Best Coast, Murder By Death, Those Darlins, and Polyphonic Spree among others. Stay tuned for more information on Bruiser Queen and additional tour dates.
